Dr. Starkman is an expert in the field of neurology and treating chronic back pain. In this interview with Fox News, Dr. Starkman first advocates the use of botox to relieve chronic back pain. Starkman describes how he had used the treatment for years to help relieve his patient’s symptoms and it worked for up to four months at a time. By injecting botox into the muscles of the back, he can help relax the tension within them, which blocks the chronic pain. Using an EMG machine, Dr. Starkman can monitor the exact location of the muscles before injecting the botox. The best part of the botox treatments is that they take only a few seconds, are relatively painless, and have few to no complications after the procedure.
To the right is a video in which Dr. Starkman appears in NY1 demonstrating his use of botox injections to relieve the agonizing symptoms of chronic back pain. Using a computerized machine to locate the muscles, Dr. Starkman injects the botox into the lower back. His patients report relief as soon as a few days that continues for three to four months, and sometimes much longer for other patients. The botox helps relieve muscle spasms which cause many of the symptoms of lower back pain, and even helps patients with herniated discs. There are very few side effects from using the botox and it is covered by various insurance companies.
In addition to providing suggestions on treating chronic back pain, Dr. Starkman also has experience treating carpal tunnel syndrome. To the right is a clip of Dr. Starkman advocating the use of better mice for computers and mouse pads with wrist rests to prevent the development of carpal tunnel syndrome in computer workers on Channel 4. He also advocates exercising the hands every hour or so during work to prevent the onset of CTS.
In yet another interview on the ABC network (channel 7), Dr. Starkman is seen giving professional advice on how to minimize lower back pain. Dr. Starkman stresses the importance of supporting the lower back as best as possible with special pillows designed for lumbar support. The back has a natural S-shape and spending long hours sitting down compresses the back and leads to pain. Other than relying on pillows, you can stretch! Bringing your knees to your chest and taking frequent breaks from sitting will help prevent lower back pain. Dr. Starkman also mentions that it is important to visit a neurologist or pain management specialist when experiencing back pain and not rely on a self-diagnosis.
